The Green Knight

The Green Knight ★★★

I don't know man, this felt like a moodboard of footage David Lowery cut together to get a medieval-themed whiskey commercial or something.

I do love the way that the filmmaker plays with time in all his movies; there are some breathtaking long shots and editing sequences that totally manipulate the story's timeline and sense of reality in a way that's really moving. "A Ghost Story" still remains my absolute favourite.

If Dev Patel wasn't the lead, this movie wouldn't be interesting at all. I appreciated the Tarkovsky-cribbing cinematography, and some of the cinematic elements, but the film overall is hollow and beautiful, like Alicia Vikander in a wig giving a knight a hand job for absolutely no reason. Three green knights!
